A DAY of games, dancing, music and fun was held at Fairfield First School to celebrated the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee last Thursday (May 31).
Youngsters have been learning about Queen Elizabeth and her reign and worked together to create a large finger-painted portrait of Her Majesty.
Headteacher Helen Hedar said: "The portrait is wonderful and will take pride of place in the Jubilee display in school.
"We intend sending a photo of the finished piece to the Queen and hope that she likes our work."
Every child was involved in creating the masterpiece and they got to wear red, white and blue on the party day, which included a bouncy castle, royal races, a street party lunch and more.
Every child received a special souvenir coin, purchased by the PFTA, and a jubilee celebratory bible, provided by local churches.
The children also got to see pictures and souvenirs from past celebrations, as well as hear first-hand experiences from parents and staff of the celebrations for the Golden and Silver Jubilees and the Coronation.
Mrs Hedar said: "We were quite surprised at how little some children knew about our Queen before the project began, but they have certainly been very excited to find out information from family and friends, as well as researching books and the internet.
